Hillary H YxYY005 Session Ideas
"The first rule of YxYY is you don't schedule YxYY." — DJ GoodWord
 
Ann V The most important part of YxYY is that all you fascinating nerds gather together to enjoy excellent conversation and collaboration with one another. Beyond that, we ask that there be no pre-published schedules. You can pre-plan, but wait to announce the date/time until a little before it happens via the YxYY app. This creative constraint encourages serendipity at the event by encouraging you to be present, rather than showing up with your schedule already packed.
 
If you'd like to host a gathering or session, be it a miracle berry tasting, a Settlers of Catan tournament, or a comic book discussion group, post it below! This is a way for folks to get excited about your idea, and for collaborations to happen. You can also post on the Facebook group to gauge interest or invite early discussion/brainstorming.
 
Amy M If your session requires a gathering space, let us know. Here's information on available spaces at the Ace. Please fill out this form if you need to reserve a space for your project or session or if you have any equipment needs that the hotel may be able to acommodate. We can't guarantee that we can provide the equipment but we'll see what we can do. Amy Muller will be in touch.

Hillary H YxYY005 Project Ideas
YxYY is DIY & BIBO (brilliance in/brilliance out). You could check last year's wiki for ideas, but we're confident y'all will make this your own! Give each project a heading and a sentence or 5. Or feel free to link out to a new page (which you can create on the fly by typing an @ sign).

YxYY Survival Guide
Unscheduling 
Part of our culture at YxYY is that, aside from a few anchor activities (see schedule & map) [change to 2017 version when available] there are no pre-published schedules. The goal is to be present & discover the fun as it happens around you, rather than showing up with your whole weekend already planned. 
                                                
YxYYers are encouraged to invite people to their fun however you wish! If you have a discussion you’d like to start, a talk you’d like to give, or a karaoke competition you’d like to instigate, feel free to announce it on the app or however you wish (pirate flag, bullhorn, whisper chain)!

Hillary H Stay tuned!
 
Why yes, it is! If you are unaccustomed to the balmy temps of Palm Springs in the summer, please take care of yourself. This means drinking more water than you think you need (cocktails do not count), cooling off in the pool, or inside at the ACE, and reapplying sunscreen and/or wearing a hat. Try to avoid being that-dude-who-went-to-the-ER-during-YxYY, m’kay?

Hillary H First rule of Yes Club? There are no dumb questions. 
 
"If you're not sure, ask someone instead of assuming."
  • Can I bring my drone/quadcopter/UAV?
  • Yes. :) We've had them there before. But thanks for asking!
 
  • Yes! King's Highway, the restaurant inside the Ace, will remain open to the public, but the rest of the facility is for Yay-Sayers only for the duration of the event. 
  • Related: When eating at King's Highway, please show them your wristband and/or mention you're with YxYY so your bill goes toward our food & beverage minimum!

Food, Glorious Food
 
The Ace Hotel has a terrific restaurant on property called King's Highway. You'll be able to order by the pool and get room service. You can also eat in the restaurant, which will be open to the public as well (so be sure to wear your YxYY wristband at all times and if you're staying at the Ace it helps to charge it to your room.) They officially don't allow outside food on property but they're chill with our event with regard to what takes place in rooms. By the pool, though, they will not want outside food/drinks other than water bottles. But no glass containers!

Lots of chatting on Facebook about potential gatherings and outings in different cities throughout the year. Thought a Hackpad to track them might be handy.
